The US Open is currently underway! And the Williams sisters are getting all the support from their fellow YBF celeb friends.

Upcoming Girls Trip actress Queen Latifah took a break from filming her new movie and trekked it to USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens a few days ago to cheer on Serena and Venus from the stands. And it looks like she brought her partner Eboni Nichols along with her to peep the tennis action.

And they weren’t the only ones rooting for the Williams sisters.

Serena hit the court to battle it out against Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan during her fourth round Women's Singles match and came out victorious! She beat Yaroslava 6-2 6-3 AND she set a new Grand Slam record winning her 308th Grand Slam match! She passed Roger Federer in the all-time list of matches won at the tennis majors.

Rena shook hands with her opponent and immediately went to sign autographs for adoring fans after another epic win. She's set to play in the quarterfinals against Romanian player Simona Halep today (Sep 7th) at 7:00pm EST.

The 34-year-old tennis superstar is well on her way to her 23rd Grand Slam title that will also go down in the history books as she will be 1 Grand Slam title away from tying with Margaret Court. Good luck!
